    Hi Sniper !

    He was Gazetted 9th December 1914 ..... but it doesn't give details I'm afraid ....


    It's possible it maybe in the War Diary .... have you tried there already ?


    EDIT ........ One of the guys on another forum I frequent - suggests you try the curator of Kings Own Royal Lancaster Museum in Lancaster, apparently he is very helpful in filling in missing details.
